1967 2000GT on eBay



This such a cool car with very low production numbers.
It's not a bmw........but such a cool car to be appreciated.


1967 Toyota 2000GT Coupe $650,000.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1967-...item4aa9d96204

...... I think I want one... no money

ebay ad details.......

Here is an unprecedented opportunity to acquire a 1-owner, low mileage mint example of an ultra-rare U.S. delivery 1967 Toyota 2000GT.

Of the 351 cars made, only 84 were left hand drive, of which only 62 came into the U.S.A. between 1967-70. Today less than 40 of those are known to still exist, making this one of the rarest collector vehicles in the world.

All 2000GT's were handbuilt by Yamaha, and today are universally regarded as being the first Japanese "Supercar". Fitted with a 2 liter, twin cam six cylinder engine with 3 twin-choke carburetors and a 5-speed transmission the GT 'redlines' at 7000rpm, producing speeds of 70 mph in 2nd; 100 in 3rd; and just below 140 mph in top end.

Toyota proved their prowess in the Grand Touring class by including features such as: 4-wheel independent suspension with Dunlop power assisted disc brakes on all four wheels, rack & pinion steering, lightweight magnesium-alloy styled wheels with genuine knock-offs, aerodynamic all-steel "numbered" bodies mounted on a "Y-type" spine frame, remote engine oil cooler, full cockpit instrumentation including amp-water temp-oil temp-oil pressure-fuel gauge along with speedometer and tachometer, a clock and rally clock unit, a signal-seeking AM radio with tone and distant/local tuning switch, reclining bucket seats with 3-point seatbelts, electric power operated antenna, power operated concealed headlights, fog-driving lights, electric rear window defroster, flow-thru ventilation system, telescoping mahogany wood steering wheel, rosewood dash and center console and rear glovebox (picture Yamaha's violin and piano craftsmanship!), full-size spare tire and wheel, complete factory tool roll with 12v trouble light along with luggage space for a hard suitcase and two soft bags and a garment bag!

This particular 2000GT was sold new by the Toyota dealer in St. Louis, MO to its only registered owner who took exceptional care of the car. After many years of storage it was recently treated to a meticulous detailing and freshening back to its original showroom condition by marque specialist Maine Line Exotics of Biddeford, Maine which included an engine rebuild, new stainless steel mufflers, recovering of the seats in the original-style pattern and material, and refininishing of the center console and glove box wood. The car is as delivered with its original matching-numbers engine and is in pristine condition for either display or grand touring.

Sold with its original books, manuals, tools, and documentation. The rarest of the rare, a one-owner completely correct and ready to enjoy example, car #88 is the finest example 2000GT to be offered in the marketplace for years the likes of which will probably never be offered for sale again. A true, "don't miss opportunity" to have the "best of the best" for your significant sports car collection.

Damn, you are going to have to give ME 650K to take this ugly piece of doo doo from you. Looks like a JAG E type of the same era

Yeah look at this dog too. Just look at that. The Toyota looks so much better.



Still doesn't mean I'd pay money for one.

Those are just rebadged Glas cars, not really BMWs.

Anyways, I think that Toyota looks great, but for that kind of cash, I'd rather go for a 300SL Coupe

I forgot about the BMW factor....if it has the logo.. it's pretty regardless and everything else is ugly....



I wouldn't pay $650K for that Toyota GT, but it is a hand built, very low product number car.... it has lots of value... out of the ballpark of most regular people.

I still appreciate that Toyota.... it's a cool car.

Glas GT cars that BMW re-badged was only because they didn't have their own large coupes at that time. Styling is pretty bad regardless.

This car, was actually designed for Nissan, and built by Yamaha.
Nissan decided not to go ahead with it.... and it was offered to Toyota.

Aluminum Body.... hand built.

They didn't make any money off it...

It has low production numbers like the BMW 507, which is worth $500K to $900K. The BMW 507.... BMW lost money on each car.... almost went bankrupt over it.


and was in a James Bond movie...

I never compared this Toyota to a BMW. Get your heads out of your asses.

For the record, I don't like mopst BMW's prior to 1980's.
